Booklover problems

So I have a problem: I can’t walk past a bookstore without going in. And when I go in, I end up buying stuff. Then I end up with more books than I’ll even have time to read. But sometimes you can’t say no: like when bargain books are marked down even further (score!) Or when an author you like has a new book out (score!) Or you have a 15% off coupon (score again!)

So recently I’ve bought:

– An anthology of works by Hans Christian Andersen

– Starling by Lesley Livingston

– The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

– Libyrinth by Pearl North

– Wicked by Gregory Maguire

Of course it might take me awhile to read all of these: I’m still working my way through the third book in the Hex Hall series.

 

 

Apparently a book sale is happening

This weekend in my city. Major discounts on hard covers and paperbacks! This is the sort of thing I live for. The only thing more fun than reading books is buying them. I definitely have a problem with buying too many books. I can’t walk past a bookstore without going in, and if I go in, 9 times out of 10 I have to buy something. It’s my only weakness. And if the prices are marked down then all bets are off.Don’t get me started on fancy book covers! Not judging a book by its cover is nice in theory, but come on: everyone does it. I’m hoping this isn’t all too good to be true: like it’ll only be stuff that’s from the reject bin of bad books that no one wanted to buy. But I guess we’ll see. Should be fun either way.

Oh hai.

As you might have guessed, this blog is about a girl named Becky who loves books. Okay, so it’s not the most original title, but I needed to decide on something and not keep putting off starting a blog because I couldn’t think of a snappy title. So here it is: Becky the Book Lover.

I read a lot but I’m also a writer. I’ve already finished one novel and am working on the sequel right now while I search for a literary agent. Maybe you’ll be seeing me in print some day!

But for now, I want to write about the thing I love most: books! I’m always reading at least one. I’ve been reading a lot of YA in the last year because that’s the age group that I’m writing for. I might also blog about whatever TV shows I’m watching, what music I’m listening to and all that other good stuff. :]
